Intense Announces Lower Retail Prices and Hybrid Direct-to-Customer Sales
I've owned 6 Intense's since 2000 and had the privilege of a factory tour back in 2014. I like their bikes but will miss the cachet of having a hand made alloy frame. I never had a misaligned frame and yes I've cracked a couple. I think the recent business moves (carbon frames only, offshore manufacturing, focusing on complete builds) were necessary to survive and reflect the new reality. Smaller boutique brands must adapt now or they will lose to the YT's and others. Bigger brands with deeper pockets will likely have more of a multi-channel approach. Our small local bike shops have pretty much adapted already. Buying a high end bike like an Intense was always been special order. Mobile mechanic models like Velofix will really benefit from this as well as they currently make their money on service and P&A rather than stocking complete bikes.

New Zealand Bike-Rafting Expedition - Waiau-toa Odyssey Video and Photo Story
That was really cool. My mates and were fortunate enough to borrow some demo Alpacka Rafts this weekend and did a simple ride up a local river and then paddled back down over this past weekend. These rafts are really well built, super comfortable an they handled very well, even with our fat bikes strapped on the front of the boat. Seriously considering picking one up next year to replace the entry level packraft I purchased last season.
